The Anastasia shadows are truly wonderful IMHO. The first time I tried one I was like this---> (well, I didn't actually rub my eyes --that would have taken the eyeshadow off ). I was amazed at the difference. They are pricey, but I've had the first palette I bought for over 3 years now. The shadows perform just as well as they did the day I bought it.

Switching gears a little
Hair products....high end or less expensive?
For me, you name it, I've tried it on my hair....I've done the Paul Mitchell, Matrix, Redken, Nexxus, all those expensive "salon" products....I've tried Wen....I used many brands from the drugstore....Pantene, Tresseme, Garnier, Organix, Dove, Neutrogena. What I use & is.....Suave Professionals! I use the Almond & Shea Butter shampoo & conditioner. Works great, moisturizes my color treated hair, smells terrific and very inexpensive. I their volumizing mousse, heat protection spray & the touchable finish hairspray.
I color my own hair and have been using Revlon ColorSilk for years. Can usually get it on sale for less than $3 a box!

Hair products?
The one thing I do look for with either end is sulfate free - I have been only using sulfate free for about 4 years and it's made a difference with my hair - my color lasts and lasts.

I will not color my own hair, so for that reason, I am high end.
Shampoos and conditioners, I am like you JerseyGyrl.......tried everything from Wen to "professional" drugstore products......I have no faves. I like Organix and right now I am loving some Pureology my stylist gave me.

I would love to find a GREAT hairspray that holds firmly but doesn't leave your hair dry and with a helmet head.

I am going to Ulta today for a couple things and will be checking out the Anastasia shadows!

I highly recommend the Suave Touchable Finish hairspray. They have 2 formula's, lightweight ( this is the one I use ) & extra hold. Its not stiff or sticky but, it holds my hair nicely without being dry or looking like helmet head. It also smells great which is a BIG plus because most hairsprays smell terrible! I usually pick this up at Walmart for less than $3.
Tresemme' Tres Two is another nice hairspray....but...it doesn't smell nice like Suave.

For the most part, I use high-end cosmetics. Mostly because I like to try things out before buying.

Some good drugstore brands I like:

L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara
Physician's Formula makes nice products in general.
NYC Eye eye shadow
Maybelline Dream Mousse foundation - heard good things, haven't tried yet.
Cetaphil cleanser


High end:

I LOVE Nars "Org****"blush - the cream stick.
MAC eyeliner
Chanel eyeshadows
MAC Studio Fix powder foundation (pricey but lasts forever)
Armani foundation. It's worth it.

I L'oreal Voluminous Carbon Black waterproof mascara! Its my holy grail mascara, I rarely use anything else.
I wear mineral foundation but, in the Winter I occasionally use Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse foundation. It gives my skin a nice, smooth matte finish.
